Please find the agenda attached!
Due to time constraints and some board members being out of town, we are moving the board meeting back one week to allow for all issues on the current agenda to be addressed.
The meeting will now take place on August 14th, at 7:30pm at St. Thomas a Beckett Church.
We just received a call from our contractor and due to the rain and wet conditions work is being rescheduled for Tuesday, August 7th and Wednesday, August 8th beginning at 7am 8/7 and ending at 6pm 8/8. During this time no cars will be allowed to park on either street. Please have your cars moved prior and during these time to the previous locations stated (St Thomas, North Shore and the church across from theForest Edge entrance.
Towing will be unforced at the times above if cars aren’t moved.
Wednesday yard waste will be cancelled but trash pickup and recycling will happen on Monday.
Apologies if I missed anything in this post and once again we appreciate your patience with the Board and our contractor as we get this important large job done.

Several of you have brought problems concerning pets to the attention of the Board in the last few months.
Please be reminded that Fairfax County Leash Laws are in effect in our cluster. When walking pets, keep animals away from private gardens and children's play areas. Dogs and cats must be inoculated against rabies by six months of age and should be licensed annually.
Fairfax County has an animal waste control ordinance, commonly known as a "Pooper Scooper" law. You must pick up after your pet, even in wooded areas, and you are required to collect your plastic bags for disposal. Leaving them on the grounds or parking areas is not an option. Violation can result in fines by Fairfax County.
Direct all complaints about pets, including requests to remove strange or strangely behaving animals to Fairfax County Fire, Rescue and Animal Control at 703-691-2131.
We appreciate your full cooperation with these laws.
The agenda is attached for the Board Meeting on June 5th at 7:30 PM at St. Thomas a Beckett Church.
Hope to see you there!
It's been brought to the Board's attention that our landscaping company has been blowing debris into yards, which is a concern we would like to stay on top of.
If anyone had similar experiences in the future, please inform the FECA Board. If you can include a photo to help support the complaint this gives us and the supervisor better evidence to address the problem with the crew.
This Spring and Summer the Cluster will be undertaking several projects to improve or maintain our Cluster spaces. We are currently working with the vendors to confirm the exact dates for these improvements and will keep everyone posted.
1) Resealing the parking areas. This including filling cracks and painting lines for parking spaces.
2) New play equipment will be installed in the Forest Edge tot lot.
3) Replacing sidewalks and fixing drainage issue on Forest Edge.
4) Replanting several trees between Greenmont Court and Forest Edge.
*** As part of the improvements, our vendor will offer personal sidewalk repair at a discounted price for homeowners. Brothers Paving, as a courtesy to the Cluster, will extend their price of $7.50/ sq. ft. to the homeowners interested in having their sidewalks replaced.
If interested, please provide your name, address, & phone number to FECA Board Member Cynthia Mostoller via e-mail —> Cynthia.firstname.lastname@example.org or at 571-926-8767
The deadline to submit is June 8, 2018 at 5pm.
The board will forward the list to the paving contractor and Mr. York of Brothers Paving will contact you directly, meet with you, and give you a quote. If you choose to proceed, payment will be due at the time of quote. Payment is cash or check only, payable directly to Brothers Paving. Work will take place in July, schedule to be determined by Brothers Paving. The board will notify the community when we have a firm date.
Please note, there is no obligation. No response is needed if you are not interested. The Board/Cluster Association provides this information for homeowners to decide. ***
Please see the notice below from our trash service provider about yard waste.
The weather is getting warmer and the days longer which allows more time for homeowners to work on their lawns, gardening, and tree pruning. Over the last month, our drivers have reported that yard waste is being left behind as it is not set out correctly. This can become confusing and cause frustration with homeowners and the Republic Services HOA team would like to take a moment to remind all homeowners of our yard waste packaging instructions below. For your convenience, I also attached a flyer which can be distributed to homeowners or placed on your community website.
All brush and limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter, cut into 4-foot lengths or less, bundled with rope or twine and cannot exceed 50 pounds
Residents must place yard waste out on their scheduled yard waste collection day, from March 1st through December 24th. Grass clippings, leaves and twigs can be placed in biodegradable paper bags, plastic bags, or personal containers marked as ‘YARD WASTE’.
